New Legion Club (1920)

This old 1920 image shows the New Legion Club which was soon to be lost under the development of the War Memorial Hospital which presumably positions it at the junction of Thorpe Road and Midland Road.

Peterborough District Hospital (1940s)

NI Yeomanry Leaving Peterborough (1914)

I have to confess this is an image I know nothing about apart from the text “NI Yeomanry Leaving Peterborough 1914”. I neither know who the “NI Yeomanry” are nor the exact location of the image …… but I’d love to know more !

Well done to Adam Miller who has identified this location as Midland Road with just a tiny piece of Crescent Bridge in the background between the hats of the two guys just left of centre !
